Woollim Entertainment has announced that all members of Golden child have tested negative for COVID-19 and will be returning to promotions.
Earlier this month, Golden Child temporarily stopped all activities after Jaehyun did diagnosed with COVID-19. Jaehyun followed the quarantine protocol by staying in an assigned treatment center while the other members – all tested negative – were voluntarily self-isolated for two weeks as a precaution.
On December 31, Woollim Entertainment announced that Jaehyun had successfully recovered from COVID-19 after staying at his assigned treatment center and had recently tested negative for the virus. Since the other members of Golden Child also tested negative for the virus after two weeks of self-quarantine, the group will resume all activities.
The full statement from Woollim Entertainment is as follows:
Hello, this is Woollim Entertainment.
We inform you of the release of Golden Child from self-quarantine.
Previously, Bong Jaehyun, a member of Golden Child, was tested for COVID-19 and was confirmed to test positive on December 17 with no symptoms. After that, he stayed in a community treatment center according to government health guidelines and focused entirely on his treatment.
Bong Jaehyun tested negative for COVID-19 in his final final test, and received confirmation from health officials that there would be no problem [his returning] everyday life and promotions.
In addition, the other Golden Child members who remained in self-quarantine due to the fact that they were in close contact [with Jaehyun], also tested negative in their last tests and were therefore released from self-quarantine.
As a result, Golden Child, which has suspended all promotions due to self-quarantine, will resume its activities and plan to greet its fans.
We apologize again for causing concern to many people.
We will continue to work hard to ensure the health of our artists and their safety during their promotions, and we will strictly follow the guidelines and rules for the prevention of COVID-19.
We are happy to hear that Jaehyun has made a full recovery!
